"Now is the hour, when we will say farewell..."

Desert Road looking mean

After what can only be described as a wonderful week, it was time to say goodbye to all the tutors who I got to spend time with every single day, and the amazing students, some who came from as far away as London and Melbourne to do my classes. I made some exciting new friendships born out of the love for fabric and creative goodness and it was hard to say goodbye to those who did two classes with me and especially Di who had such faith in me and my classes that she opted to do all three, spending 5 whole days with me. Saying goodbye was harder than I expected.
There wasn't much snow left along the roadside after a week of sunshine. But the pockets that were left looked pretty.
When I got home I unpacked all my art gear and remembered that two of my students had given me thank you gifts at the end of the classes. They were totally unexpected and I was a wee bit overwhelmed by their kindness.
Thank you Jenny, I am thrilled that you enjoyed the class so much. The hand wash certainly does smell heavenly and will be put to good use!
And Sian, how lucky was it for me that you decided from the other side of the world to come and do my classes? I was so touched that you gave me this wee gift and I love everything the precious wrappings contained, especially the shrinky! You certainly know what brings me joy! Thank you so much. x
To all the students who decided to take my classes, THANK YOU. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did. To those who didn't, you missed some light hearted fun days with like-minded people.

If any of you are interested in doing classes, the ones shown here over the last few days, or new ones, I suggest you get a small group of girlfriends together for a weekend. I love to travel, so send me an email and I'll design something for you, and come and spend the weekend with you. I guarantee everyone will have a great time!

Can you come to Houston, Corder, or Fairfax right away? (Margaret can get here, I'm sure!)

I can hear the excitement in your voice as you talk about the week - how I wish I could have been part of it!
